's pick it up with four minutes left in the game. cowboys up by four. bryce brown loses the ball. and morris claiborne scoops it up, and he's off to the proverbial races. 50 yards the other way for the touchdown. that would appear to seal the deal for the cowboys, but the eagles not done. check this out. i love these. less than a minute remaining. cowboys punting to johnson. fields the punt. yep, he's coming all the way back from the 2 yard line. a little weave, duck and move and he is gone as well. all the way down the sideline. outrunning everybody including the popcorn guy. untouched for 98-yard touchdown. gives the eagles a chance with 31 seconds left after missing the two-point conversion, down five. but they do not get the on-side kick, and the cowboys hang on to win, 38-33. they are still alive in the playoff hunt at 6-6. the eagles, well, they haven't won since september the 30th. >>> a couple number one picks squaring off, andrew luck led his colts into detroit to face matt stafford's lions. less than three minutes left in the game. luck buys a little time. this guy is l

be the brown v. board of education for gay and lesbian couples. or the case before it that embraced segregation. it's very hard to predict. it leaves many of us very, very nervous. it's not just the 120,000 couples in this country who are gay or lesbian and married but it affects all of us. we currently have a country that disenfranchises people who want to marry for love and we don't let them. 31 states prohibit those type of marriages. >> a lot of people come back to the 1960s in loving versus west virginia and whether it will mirror that merely 50 years later. the court, though, has ten marriage equality cases to choose from. as i pointed out, they only chose two. if i know this correctly, they had eight different ones to consider choosing and two prop 8 ones. they have one doma and one prop 8. >> what's fascinating, this is a court that has avoided this issue. it's been pathological. everyone in lawrence v. texas, the opinion was distorted in my ways because of a clear effort not to say anything that would have baring on the same-sex marriage issue. suddenly, they take two issues with the b

to mind, brown versus the board of education, that sat on people's desks for a long time and a bunch of different cases that all sort of folded in to it. loving versus virginia. that was interracial marriage. that was another case that sat around a long time because it seemed as though the supreme court, differently configured supreme court, actually wanted to wait and let the country lead. and when you look right now, even some people who have been fighting for same-sex marriage for years say the math and the map don't make the supreme court taking this up right now a certainty. >> your law professors are so thrilled with you right now, joe johns, that you could just spout that off and i'm impressed. joe johns, thank you very much for that. see you probably friday. for the record, folks, nine states plus d.c. have legalized same-sex marriage to date. exit polls of last month's elections show that a slight majority of voters think that gay marriage should be legal in their states. >>> moving on now. rain, wind and snow are hammering the west coast. three separate storms in just one w
the football from charlie brown. the president is now asking for twice the amount of increase in taxes that he campaigned on. really, the proposal that tim geithner brought to capitol hill is one that i believe the democrats one-point even support if put to a voight. the increase in taxes in over $200,000 of income, the incredible increase in change to the death tax, wanting to have a new credit card with no credit limit to the president so he can additionally just borrow and spend and tax? you go through all of these things. it really never deals with the fumblefundamental problem in our country which is the spending. our problem is not that we're taxed too little, we just continue to spend too much. >> he is asking that the debt ceiling that he has sole control over and how much the debt ceiling can be raised without having to get permission from capitol hill. i mean, those two things he had to know were going to be non-starters with the republicans and maybe with some democrats, so i mean, maybe you're right that he deliberately is trying to move the goal posts so that there is no deal that

brown has one more bite at the apple. but i do think it would be better esthetics if the next time they are going to attack a member of the administration, they actually showed they weren't fixated on black appointees. one after the other, they seem more comfortable to attack black appointe appointees. that's a big concern for people across the country. >> what about the president though? he clearly is backing susan rice. but is this a fight worth having? i mean -- >> this is a man who has won office, who is not going to be on the ballot again. he said i'm going to back the people who i think can do the best job. if you have an issue with my general because he was talking to this socialite in florida, forget about it. that's not what the war is about. let the man do the job. if rice came on and did what the cia told her to do, that's pretty much what any senator would do too. so this is a nonissue. >> i hope no one takes their eye off the ball, which is going after the people that committed this. >> that's what worries me. our country has big issues. to keep fixating on the persona
of questions. steve brown has more in chicago with this. we heard a little bit of the 911 call before the break. how do those final moments play out at arrowhead stadium earlier on saturday morning? reporter: yes, let's put that into context. kasandra perkins was shot numerous times and fatally wounded by the father of their child. that is jovan belcher, who drove to arrowhead stadium, essentially to talk to two people. that would be head coach and general manager. neither of those two gentlemen have commented on how those final seconds played out. but police officer that was watching did watch those fateful seconds unfold. >> we have two coaches and one other employee here.
